Indispensable! A great deal at ANY price!

I've been a baker for over 20 years, largely because I was inspired by this book. It is, floury-hands-down, my favorite cookbook. The recipes are clear and well written. The results are consistently delicious. The authors are enormously generous in sharing their knowledge and passion. Whether you're a beginning baker or a seasoned professional, get this book!

A superb book on bakery treats

This has to be one of my favorite cookbooks when it comes to treats that you would normally get from a bakery. This book is filled with those delightful cakes, pastries, and cookies of yesteryear, you know, when bakeries actually cooked everything from scratch. Your not going to find things you would find in your local grocery store in here, you will find treats that you would normally find only in the finest bakeries.The book is divided into several sections: Muffins, Danishes, crusty breads, pastries, cookies, pies and tarts, cakes, and chiffon layer cakes. Most recipes come with either a hand drawing or there are a few color pictures included. Each recipe is carefully written and includes information about the type of pastry this is, or something special you need to know about the preparation. The Queen of Sheba Torte is my favorite in this book a rich chocolate cake with a ganache topping. You will find that this book will help you create finery that typically only comes out of the better bakeries.

We loved the Greyston Bakery, and we love the book

We used to live near the Greyston Bakery when it was in Riverdale, and it was wonderful. We felt lucky when we found the cookbook. All the recipes we have tried have been delicious. We just finished making the sesame tahini cookies as a gift for friends we are visiting, and they actually asked us if we could make another batch before we left!

Never fails!

I hope they reprint this book. My copy is getting old from being used so much! I have tried almost every recipe from this book--always wonderful. The results are always perfect. I can't think of another book I own with such a great success rate.

Elegance Made Easy

The Greyston Bakery Cookbook contains recipes that you might have always wished to make but thought might be too hard, like fancy pastries, tarts, cookies, breads,and cakes. But each recipe has simple directions with useful comments, and turn out tasting wonderfully and looking elegant. My personal (and our family's) favorite is the Chocolate Mousse Cake: two layers of chocolate chiffon cake split then filled and covered with a simple chocolate mousse, then frozen and glazed with a chocolate water glaze. Chocoholics, this is to die for! Tasty, simple, and impressive to gaze upon. Cooks who like to bake goodies should demand a reprint of this book. I treasure my copy.
